You can do KB snatches in place of snatches, but don't think of them as a substitute - really not even similar. Think of filling the missing volume and time created by removing the snatching from the program rather than the movement. That said, I would train with the KBs in the way that works for training w KBs, not trying to use a KB snatch like an Olympic lift.

You can add in some DLs if you want, just watch how you feel and make sure you're not going nuts - DLs for some people can add up quickly and be very taxing.
